About

There are times in everyone's lives where we find ourselves needing some additional support to get through the tough moments. Now more than ever we are experiencing increased stress and uncertainty, which may bring up a lot of negative and scary feelings. No matter what obstacle you find yourself facing in this moment, I am here to help you access the strength you have to overcome it!
I have worked in a number of settings, giving me a unique set of perspectives and skills. My goal is to provide a safe and non-judgemental space for clients to work through the challenges they are facing. I empower my clients by supporting them as they process through their emotions and teach them practical tools to better navigate through life's tough spots
If you are ready to find the strength inside of you, reach out and set up a session! As an integrative therapist, your treatment goals come first. I am looking forward to working with you!
